Charges have been approved for three people after a stolen vehicle collided with an ambulance in Prince George this week. 

Cpl. Craig Douglass says Prince George RCMP received a report at roughly 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday (Oct. 28) of a three-vehicle accident on Highway 97, just north of the Simon Fraser Bridge.

When officers and emergency personnel arrived, they found two pick-up trucks and one ambulance had been involved in a crash. 

Three individuals took off on foot, but were arrested shortly after with the help of a Police Dog Services team

The initial investigation has officers believing a stolen pick-up truck drove through a ditch and then onto Highway 97.

It then struck a median barricade and collided with a southbound ambulance, which caused a crash with another truck towing a trailer. 

As a result, the BC Prosecution Service has approved the following charges against Jocelyn Rae Wood, a 34-year-old Chetwynd resident: 

  • Dangerous operation of a conveyance (vehicle)
  • Refuse to provide a breath sample
  • Fail to stop after accident
  • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000

They were released on documents to appear in court on Dec. 8, 2020.

A single charge for possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 was also approved for 31-year-old Brittany Ann Bisenberger, also from Chetwynd, and 26-year-old Dallas Raymond Garbitt of Moberly Lake

Both were released but will be back in court on Nov. 25, 2020.
